Music pausing on Samsung TV after 1 second

Been listening to spotify on my Samsung smart tv (UN49KU7000F) for months with no problem, now all of a sudden it's pausing every second. Press play and pauses again after one second. 

 

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, signing out of all devices, restarting TV, unplugging TV, deleting other apps on TV in case I was out of memory, nothing works. 

 

Works fine on all my other devices though, I see it's happening to people with playstation too, could it be related to some update?

Same problem on Samsung UE55MU6172 (bought 2018). Tried everything possible. 

Spotify recommends 200-500MB free space. I have uninstalled every single app possible. There is not even 500MB free space total on latest smart tvs even if you uninstall everything. I see this as ABSOLUTE FAIL on Spotify side. Its a simple app for playing music for christ sake, the only reason it will eat all the memory in your device is POOR design. 

I was literally about to buy PREMIUM, but what is the point of buying premium if you cant do something as trivial as playing music on my new Tv? You can stream HD movies on Netflix or HBOgo without any problems, but booom, you turn on Spotify and primitive music needs at least 500Mb.

I'm leaning towards spotify because my tv hasn't done a software update in over 6 months (tried doing one to see if it would help) and spotify only just stopped working a few days ago.

same problem on my girlfriend's Samsung smart TV (2018 model) since yesterday. Also tried everything you mentioned, to no effect.

When I tried logging in with my account, it worked. Logging in with my girlfriend's account again: problem still there.

Does anyone have the solution for this problem? The same keeps happening on my Samsung TV aswell. I did all resets, deleting and downloading and everything is up to date.

I'm having the same issues, pausing after 1-3 seconds of play.  This has been happening for the last 2-3 days.  I have tried uninstalling the app, logging online and "close spotify from everywhere" nothing works!!  Any help here from Spotify would be great.
